People’s Press: A magazine exploring the use of tech for good in 2030
We believe that the future isn’t something that happens to us, but something we can actively shape.
This fictional neighbourhood magazine provides a positive vision for how people might use technology to tackle social and environmental challenges in 2030, showcasing the enormous potential of responsible and ethical technology through a mixture of news pieces, features, interviews and debates.
It includes inspiring stories from the fictional town of Civitana and a piece that delves into the manufacturing revolution - visiting a 'fabrication lab' in a once run-down part of town, meeting the people that made it possible and those who use it as a workplace, and we share the experiences of Qarar’s users, the citizens’ jury platform for collective decision making. We also interview movers and shakers from the community, such as Lethabo who worked on a virtual reality platform aimed at sharing migration stories to build empathy, or Amelie who started a campaign to improve employment rights for freelancers and gig economy workers.
We hope that this positive vision for the use of technology in urban life can help inspire you to address social and environmental challenges in the present and for the future.
